Moving into a new neighborhood can be as stressful for the new neighbors as it is for the new residents. Getting to know the folks who could potentially be sharing walls, fences, or interior views with you can be harrowing, but starting off with a pleasant gift is a good way to lay the foundation for a pleasant, neighborly relationship that may even blossom into true friendship.
Moving into a new neighborhood means starting from scratch in many ways, neighbor engagement perhaps chief among them. Try initiating a friendly relationship by offering a small notecard with your names and a warm hello. This simple act might not seem like much, but it’s a delightful way to introduce yourselves to an established community without breaking the bank on fresh baked goods or fruit baskets.
For folks welcoming a new neighbor into their midst, a small collection of fruits, veggies or flowers from the surrounding gardens is a lovely and memorable way to say welcome to new homeowners.
Baked goods, while a classic housewarming gift, may contain allergens or other ingredients unfit for your new neighbor’s palette.
